Transform the Colors of the Agfa CT Precisa!

My favourite camera to use with a cross-processed Agfa CT Precisa is the Lomo LC-A. For a long time, I have wanted to test my color filters---which I usually use with normal color film---on a slide film for x-pro. Finally I have done it and I'm in love with the results.

All you need is a red color transparency and a camera. My transparency is from the colour filter set by LEE, with which I’ve already transformed some color photos.

I simply taped the transparency on my LC-A and set the camera to ISO 50 instead of 100.

If I want to take pictures without the red transparency, I simply stick it on the back of the camera for storage.

For the the next roll of film, I will try a few other color transparencies. I’m curious about what will come out. And I’m so in love with the results, I doubt if anything can beat these!

See for yourself.

I think the colors are reminiscent of films by Fuji or even of Redscale, but quite different. So, try it out!

    Wonderful article!!! You can shoot IR on LCA+... Put some #88A gel filter over lens, then put a bit of the same gel over light sensor, and cover film window with electrician's tape. Also, load camera in the dark. Exposures will be long, so cable release and tripod, and for reciprocity failure, set the light meter thing to ISO 100-200 for Rollei Infrared 400. Enjoy!! Merry Christmas!!
